'Sir Thomai Shmghneuy, Pmldent
of Canadian Pacifio, Imprened
MAXXS TBI? OVER THE CITY
"If we were In my office In Mon
treal I would discuss this question,
but over here in the states, It would
be In very bad taste for me to talk
upon this subject," said Sir Thomas
U. Shaugbntssy, president of the
Canadian Pacific nallroad company,
in answer to the question, "What, In
your Judgment, will be tbe outcorcj
of the war in Europe?"
Mr Thomas, accompanied by Lady
Pbauglinessy and thrlr daughter, are en
icute to the Pacific enact, where they
will visit the expositions and rett'rn by
the northern route. Their private car
t rived In Omaha over the Mllwaukeu
from Chicago. Mere they were mat by
Ptenident Mohlor of the Union raclfic
and Mrs. Mohler and taken on an auto
mobile ride through the western part of
the city, out to Florence and back ever
the "Prettleat Mile,"
Iter In the day Sir Thomaa and his
family left for the west, going- out on a
special train and accompanied as far as
Grand Island by President and Mrs. Moh
ler and Superintendent Jeffers. Out of
Omalia the party occupied Sir Thomas'
l-rivete tar, "Klllainey."
Omaha Beastlfal City.
After his automobile trip about the city
Blr Thomas said: "I have never been In
Omaha before. 1 have often hesrd of
tbe city and have been anxious to see U,
but In the past my trips to the west have
taken me over other routes.
"Omaha is a beautiful city.' substantial
ar.d well built, and with the splendid
country that I understand is tributary
snd Its peculiar location ft ought to be
iome the metropolis of the central west
"Business conditions In Canada are not
)ut what we would like to have them.
The wsr hss Interfered with trade, and
consequently railroad business ha suf
fered. However, we are looking for an
Improvement. The outlook Is excellent
for a latge small grain .acreage and pros
pects are that prices to the farmers will
eontinue to. remain high for some time."
lr Thomas was formerly a railroad
man In the fnlted mates. In 1SW he was
with the Milwaukee road as storekeeper
st Milwaukee. From there he was tailed
to the Canadian 1'ailflc as assistant gen
eiel manauer, and subsequently wss pro
moted a number of tlm-e, becoming presi
dent of the system and chairman of the
board a num'wr of years ago. At this
time hn exm Uea executive jurisdiction
over lite greatest number of miles of
railroad of any man In the world. Since
ls I" nd President Mohler have been
Intlmato friends, as have the members
' their respective families.
Little Tot is to Be
Witness Against Her
Father; Murder Case
Emil Musik. North. Tweniy-slxth
treet. South Omaha, was placed on trial
lefore District Judge English on a charge
of murdering his wife. Mrs. Anna Muslk,
by cutting her throat on March k He Is
charged with first degree murder.
Temporary Insanity, caused by melan
cholia and drunkenness, wtu be the de
fense, according to Attorneys Joe Iledner
nd Wait W. Hoye. representing Musik.
A 6-year-old daughter of the dead
woman and the defendant, who baa been
taken from Muslk's custody by the ju
venile court and placed In another home,
will testify against her father, according
to County Attorney Maguey. Her name
has been endorsed on the information.
The county stturnry expects to Intro
duce eviderue to the effect that Muslk
a supported by his wife and that a
quarrel over this condition led to her al
leged .murder. Muslk.' It is alleged, eut
his wife's throat with a knife.
County Treasurer l"re and District
Clerk Robert 8mlth hsve returned from
Lincoln, here for several weeks they
lobbied valiantly for a bill extending
their terms, only to see the measure die
In the rinslnjr dsys. As Mr. lire and Mr.
Pmlth said: "The bill only Incidentally
extended our terms two years."
"There wss an unfortunate disposition
In the leglslalore to take a humorous
view of the measure." Mr. Ure Indicated
yesterday, lit advanced four reasons why
the bifl should, have pasnrd; that It was
In the direction of the short ballot, tended
to eliminate"' politic from the administra
tion of offboea, would give time to
officers to orm definite ' policies and
would i.sve aeslsted !n doing away with
the expjenae "to the taxpayers of fre
quent elections." '
Mr. Vre and Mr. Smith were cruelly
charged on the' floor of the legislature,
ss were other unselfish patriots, with
spending time for which , they are paid
by the public In advancing their own
term-extension desires. This charge, they
Insist.' was entirely ungrounded since the
benefit the public would have deprived
from the bill would have far over
shadowed the advantage to them Individually.
Boys and Girls to
Be Taught How to
Raise Own Garden
Boys and girls of the Omaha schools
will soon be earning their spending money
by raising table vegetables and selling
them, at market price to their parents

use. They will also write a story on how
they made and used thetr garden crop,
and will keep books to show the cost,
receipts and profits of thetr agricultural

expert, has arrived to start the organisa
tion work of the gardening ctuba, which

der supervision of the extension service

ing with the United States Department of
Agriculture. He spent the morning at
Park and Windsor schools with Secretary
R. B. Flower of the Young Men's Chtis-
ttsn association, telling the boys and

posed dance at the Fontenelle on -April

The president of the board wanted It

the board is not alone In this matter, but
that the whole board is lined up against
the proposed ball and cabaret.
The disclosure of the situation by The
Bee has caured considerable talk In
school board and high school circles-
"I have nothing to say on the subject
at this time, but may have a statement
later," was the expression of Superin
Further conferences between the super
Intendent, principal of the high school
and committee of the pupils Is said to be
' The stand of the school board members

that these functions shall not be given
in the name of the high school.

Why? Because you can buy goods of better quality at as
low or lower prices than those manufactured elsewhere.
'Many people are prejudiced in favor of certain goods be
cause they have used them for a long time and are not familiar
with other kinds. Most people dislike to break a habit, no
matter how bad or unprofitable it may be.
The habit of buying
Omaha made goods
will be profitable to
you in two ways: First,
because you will get
more for your money,
and second because
the money you spend
will stay right here in
that increases Oma
ha's prosperity, helps
you. Think it over.
